"A passionate romance that bridges lifetimes"
Shalie is an immortal faerie with a knack for making ice
cream. She and her faerie friend Aurora own an ice cream
shop where Shalie dreams up a new flavor everyday. Except
when she has a dream about a man, instead of ice cream.
Disconcerted about the dream, she remembers her moral soul
mate. She met Nikolos when he served under Alexander the
Great, but in a time of desperation, she had to give him
the recipe for ice cream. At that time, ice cream was
viewed as only a food fit for the faeries and other
immortals. Therefore, Shalie was punished by the faeires
and did not grant Nikolos immortality. Nikolos died, but
lived again several hundred years later.
Now, Shalie dreamed about another man. Is this man her
soul mate come back or another stranger?
I adored the premise of this story: love that bridges
lifetimes. Unfortunately, I did not think the story was
well implemented. I liked the flashbacks, but they were,
at times, confusing as to whether the current passage was a
flashback or in the present. Also, the entire flow of the
story seemed disjointed and a bit choppy.
I did enjoy the interaction between Shalie and her soul
mate. Their romance was very sweet.
Overall, Frozen Satisfaction is just okay. I kept
waiting for that something to click and the story would fit
perfectly in place, but it never came.
